Or, more practically, please consider a virtual style API where PRAGMA function_list() gathers function description strings from all registered 2 argument functions named like %_function_description(F,N) where F is the function name and N is the argument count.
A good example implementation might be a function called sqlite3_function_description(F,N) which returns short argument descriptions of all builtin functions - possibly derived from the build process.
